BCCI extends Rahul Dravid’s contract as Team India Head Coach

November 29, 2023

With Rahul Dravid’s tenure as Team India’s Head Coach ending with the conclusion of the Cricket World Cup 2023, the senior national team was without a designated coach until today (Nov. 29).

While VVS Laxman is with India’s troops for the 5-match T20I series against Australia, work was ongoing in the background to find the ideal coaching solution. It is learnt that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) offered an extension to Rahul Dravid, after the role of the T20 coach was offered to AshishNehra.

According to sources, Nehra was offered the job to lead India’s T20 team but he rejected the proposal. The BCCI then went to Rahul Dravid, asking him to continue coaching the team in all three formats. The former India Captain decided to extend his stay, along with his entire coaching staff.
